Have you ever designed a quilt and then wanted to play with the finished design in another quilt -- but didn't want to start over in drafting and coloring the quilt.
That was my dilemma this with. Last week, I shared a blog post where I designed a Mitten Quilt Layout. I liked the design -- but thought there was more I could do with it. Specifically, I wanted to create a medallion quilt with this quilt as the center.
In this tutorial I will take you through the process of how do this (without needing to redraft the center in the medallion quilt). This process could also work if you drafted a section of a quilt and wanted to repeat the section multiple times in another quilt.
Here was the starting quilt.
Here is the video. In it I will cover:
Here is my finished quilt.
A warning -- note that fabric yardages will not reflect fabric needed for the parts of the quilt in the photo. Also, you will need to go back to the first quilt if you want to modify the center (including fabrics). You will also not be able to get block specific cutting information for the blocks in the photo.
